    • Abstract


      It was argued that 3C 66B, a nearby radio galaxy, harbors a supermassive black hole binary (SMBHB). To investigate this, a 4-epoch VLBA phase referencing imaging observation was performed in 2004–2005. Here we present some preliminary results of this project. We found a large position difference compared to previous results.

      Posted on January 27, 2016

      Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
